I have been an art director, designer and illustrator of books for the children’s market for 20+ years. This includes hundreds of characters for major publishers such as Disney, Warner Bros, Random House, Simon & Schuster, Macmillan Educational, Mattel, Leapfrog, Parragon UK, McGraw Hill, Bagdasarian, Sony and many others. I am also a certified Mattel Designer / Illustrator.

I have worked with dozens of individual authors and self-publishers to help them to bring the highest level of creativity, and production for their original projects, and am used to working with tight budgets, and can render in any style including hand drawn to PIxar 3D.

I have designed hundreds of books, and have deep knowledge of book design, covers and interiors, illustration and production for Pre-K to young adult in all formats. Based on my work with licensed characters, I enjoy the challenge of developing a unique brand that shines in the marketplace while realizing the full vision of marketing potential.
